    My stay was too short :)

    Staff friendly and went the extra mile to assist. Taxis are a bit of a problem to come about so alternatives options were arranged. I was also offered a delicious original starter at dinner.

    We’ve just returned from an amazing, relaxing week’s stay with Debbie, Massimiliano and their lovely family at La Bandita. The property itself is as pretty as the pictures suggest and really easy to get to from Florence airport (only 1 hour). On arriving at the property (quite late...!) we were treated with an amazing plate of Tuscan meats, Pecorino cheeses and wine - perfect way to start the holiday and that was just the start of things to come. Breakfast each morning is truly epic with a selection of delicious pastries and cakes together with the usual cereals, fruit, juices and additional hot food which could be cooked (eggs etc). As a pastry chef by trade originally, the pastries and cakes are second to none! Debbie and her team also provide a lovely, varied menu for lunch and dinner, using local seasonal produce and handmade pasta (including the deleicious Pici pasta which our 3 year old son loved!). Everything was locally sourced, sausages, truffles, wine and was truly delicious. Aside from the amazing food and wine, the hotel also has lovely gardens with a nice selection of play equipment for the kids to enjoy (trampoline, slides, swings) and a great pool which is kept nice and clean. In terms of location, the property is perfectly placed for day trips to many of the stunning towns and places of interest, such as Montepulciano and Lake Trasimeno. We really did have a lovely, relaxing holiday at La Bandita and the family and staff were all so friendly and welcoming. Debbie and Massimiliano have only recently taken over the hotel and are already doing a great job, we can’t wait to visit again and would have no hesitation in recommending this place to other families and couples looking for a relaxing Tuscan break.

    Temperatures during our stay hit the low 40s. A fridge in the room would have been great.

    Traditional rustic style hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

    The bed and pillows was a little too hard for us.

    We were attending a wedding just 2 minutes walk up the road? It worked out absolutely brilliantly as we could escape the hustle and bustle of pre and post wedding organisation at any time. This was the nicest place we had stayed in for a long long time. The owner Palmira, her son Martino and their lovely dog Dede were so welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. They continued to go out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The property itself was fabulous. Soooo relaxing. There is a pool , a restaurant, lots of olive and fruit trees all around and beautiful views in every direction. So many stunning places to visit close by. The fact that there isn't any TV seems to add to the relaxed atmosphere. If you need to recharge your batteries this is the place. Wish we could've stayed longer.

    The bathroom in our room was up some steep stairs, not a huge issue for us but definitely for elderly or children would not be safe. There is no air conditioning which made it hard to sleep in the middle of summer and it was not possible to sleep with the shutters open because of mosquitos. The owner did supply us with a fan when we asked which helped immensely.

    The property is quite pretty. The pool area is nice and maintained well, nice place to relax. The room was a good size and the property was close to the highway and in the middle to see Siena, Cortona, montalcino, Assisi etc. the owner and her son are very nice and serve a great breakfast.

    Calm relaxed overnight stay. The food in the restaurant was very good - real Italian - and very reasonably priced. The breakfast was also good. I would recommend this as a good place for a longer stay - perhaps next time I visit Italy !

    Everything. Fantastic place for short or longer stay in Tuscany from where you can visit major region cities and touristic places. Hospitality of owners was perfect, even beyond our expectations. We spent there a full week and we know we want to return there in near future. Big "grazie" to Mrs. Palmira and Martino. --------------- Perfekcyjna miejscówka na wypady wokoło Toskanii. Właściciele są przesympatyczni i bardzo pomocni. Na miejscu można bardzo dobrze zjeść i oczywiście skosztować lokalnego wina w bardzo przystępnej cenie. Czysty basen stanowił idealne uzupełnienie naszego wypoczynku.
